Autumn (or Fall) is finally here! | September Highlights & Faves

I spent two weeks during September visiting family. I visited my sister in Tennessee and my parents in North Carolina. I drove (I will not fly during this pandemic unless absolutely necessary). We didn’t do a lot due to the current situation but I got to spend quality a lot of time with family, enjoy some pretty scenery and cooler weather.

It was a fun two weeks and I'll probably do it again soon. Because I was away from home for most of the month I didn't create as much content as I had planned to in September so I have a bit of catching up to do in October.

Some of the content I did create and share in September was about my relaxer touch-up. I felt that my hair took a turn after that and I shared about it in this video. I also realized that I needed a specific routine for my first hair wash post relaxer and came up with one.
